Virgin Atlantic flight turns back after realizing pilot hadn't completed 'final assessment' flight
Airline ticket prices could ‘skyrocket’ this summer amid potential ban of Russian oil imports: Stephen Schork
The Schork Group principal Stephen Schork argues those who plan to fly this summer should book their airline tickets immediately.
A Virgin Atlantic flight had to turn back about 40 minutes after taking off from London Heathrow Airport this week when the airline realized that one of the pilots hadn't completed a "final assessment" flight.
The airline chalked it up to a "rostering error," saying that the pilots were in full compliance with regulations, but the pairing of pilots didn't meet Virgin's own "training protocols, which exceed industry standards."
